For the Kukkutasana posture, sit by laying a mat on the floor. Keep the right foot on the thigh of the left leg by bending from the knee and keep the left foot on the right thigh by bending from the knee. After that, take out both hands between the two thighs and calves from elbow to elbow. Now, with both palms on the floor, lift the body as high as possible by putting the weight of the whole body on it. After elevating the body, stay in this position for 15 to 30 seconds and then come back to normal. This condition can last up to 2 minutes.
Benefits of doing Kukkutasana:-
